In case you (or others) don't read that Shaw forums, Mark said the slow guide issue should hopefully get fixed when the second half (modem part) of the update comes out. It's scheduled from the 20th to the 28th.
Does anyone else have a slight delay when skipping ahead now after this upgrade? I thought I had fixed it with a reboot, but I keep skipping too far ahead because there's a small delay when continuously skipping ahead now.
Something is wrong with the update, if that is the case. That never got affected with the update that we received.
As for the guide issues, I'm experiencing the "half-loaded" guide lots of the time, sometimes it refills a second later, sometimes a few seconds. I've even had it be blank, just the column with the channels, the times across the top and nothing else for a few seconds.
I asked (or tried to) on the Shaw community forums when the Remote App would be made publicly available now that the firmware updates are done. Comment allowed but moved to new thread, then content rejected. I really don't understand why Shaw will not give an estimated date. Leads me to believe the next excuse will be coming soon from Shaw. Just brings me one step closer to cancelling cable and selling the gateway.
